Need people with military backgrounds for some input on this one. Left work yesterday and took a different route home. Just north of the Savannah
International Airport there is an open grass field parallel along Gulfstream Road. It's not used for anything other than an occasional blimp landing
since the actual airport cannot support them. However in this open field there was a small military post set up at the east end, it included a fairly
large tent, a Humvee with missile launchers on the back, an aerial antenna of some sort, and surrounding the entire encampment was a double layer of
razor wire. I noticed 3 fully geared military personnel milling about around the tent, though I could not tell if any were armed or what branch of
military they are from. As I kept driving I saw an almost identical setup at the west end of this field. So today I grabbed the digi and planned to
take the same route home today. Made a few inquires around work and a couple people noticed them too and said they had been there since this Monday,
1/4/2010(possibly through last weekend) So it got to quiting time and I headed off with my camera. Made a couple passes, got noticed on the second
pass but nothing more than them turning their heads as I passed slightly slower snapping away.
Looks like a generator and a few other crates have been unloaded near the Humvee. A co-worker stated that he saw light through the tent windows as
they passed the camp last night.
You can see a couple of the men from the west end camp, these are the ones that were watching me watching them. The east end men(sorry no pic of them)
did have on full gear, tactical vests or harnesses and helmets. West end had one "civilian" looking vehicle but I could not get close enough to see
And the ever important port-a-john, just outside of the secured encampment.
Anybody here have experience with such a setup, am I seeing a normal training exercise? Two identical camps approx. a mile apart in an open field with
antennas, to me this may indicate testing of some sort of communication equipment. Thoughts on this hypothesis? The field in question is owned by the
Airport Commission (City Of Savannah) I guess I don't understand why the military would choose that location when the Air National Guard has a large
area within the secured zone of Savannah Airport, or Hunter Army Airfield is actually next to the city of Savannah, or Fort Stewart is about a 30
minute drive. Instead they choose an open field right next to a very busy road that is owned by a municipality.
